The Chancellor’s first – and last – Spring Budget

The 2017 Spring Budget will be the last of its type. Probably.

The publication of the Finance Bill in the spring/summer of this year will presage a change in Parliamentary proceedings. A second Budget in autumn 2017 followed by a Spring Statement in 2018 marks the start of a process enabling Parliament to scrutinise tax changes well before the tax year where most will take effect.

For starters, as part of a fiscally-tight Budget there was the Chancellor’s decision to target the self-employed, company owners and investors in a bid to raise billions of pounds and provide a “strong and stable platform” for the UK’s negotiations as it navigates a path away from the EU.

He also proposed to enhance the fairness in the UK’s tax system with a view to transforming the economy into one that works for everyone.

With ISA allowances set to be worth £20,000 from April 2017 and a reduction from £5,000 to £2,000 in the tax-free dividend allowance from April 2018, here are two opportunities offering professional advisers the chance to demonstrate their expertise admirably to clients.

Please find below our summary of the key announcements in the Spring 2017 Budget Statement.
